Having narrowly escaped the clutches of a band of marauders, Montaigne attributes his good luck to his face: "If my face did not answer for me, if people did not read in my eyes and my voice the innocence of my intentions, I would not have lasted so long without quarrel and without harm." With his legible eyes and voice, Montaigne's "Of Physiognomy" projects a face that quells quarrels and establishes "innocence."

Exploring I–Lands: Borders, Identity and Myth

The University of Virginia Department of English Graduate Conference

March 16-18, 2012

Borders abide and abound—between disciplines, between languages, between periods, between persons, between genders, between communities, between generations, between the self and the world. They define us in both liberating and limiting ways. This conference will investigate how borders and barriers are made, broken and refashioned, giving special attention to individual and national identities and the mythologies that inform them. Just how impermeable are such borders? Is there an unshakeable human drive to draw them?
